    Each cycle is given over 2 days. Each "Team" is a class - Team 1 and 4 teach Engine Ops, Teams 2 and 3 teach Ladder Ops. Team 5 teaches Ropes and Team 6 teaches SCBA. They'll branch out into other things - you'll do Firefighter Removal in Team 6, for example.

    You'll have 3 teams a day. If you're in the 1st platoon in your company, your first day will be teams 1, 2 and 3. If you're 2nd platoon, your first day will be teams 4, 5, and 6.

    In addition to these 3 classes, you'll have Physical Training, Lunch, and a lecture after lunch, for a total of six "classes" each day.

    You should have gotten the first 6 cycles when you got your proby books - thats the first 12 days of the academy, minus the first two days which are spent doing paperwork and the fitness test.

    Even if they do, I'm pretty sure they're not allowed to ask if you were fired or not. I believe the only thing they're allowed to ask is if you really work(ed) there or not.

    When you fill out your packet and work history, you have to put down why you left and how it happened. My investigator made it very clear I had to put if I left on my own or if I was fired. So I'm sure they call to confirm that you worked there and possibly check if you were truthful on how you left.

    I don't know if they contact all past employers though.

    I'm a few pages late (waiting for my account to be activated), but this is true for me too. I called to change address and they said I wasn't in the database. But I suspect they were referring to the "recruitment" database and not the candidate database.

    When I kept repeating I already have a list # (I had to repeat this 8 times), they said I only had to contact DCAS, which is the opposite of what I've heard/read elsewhere.

    Anyone have any clarification?

    That's the address the FDNY gave me for DCAS, but DCAS gave me a different one for the 21st Floor. I want to send it to all 3 places just to make sure, but I don't want to be reckless with my social sending it to everyone. Hmm.

    I thought everyone there had to go back today. I heard everyone have to redo the stairs except for the one dude who didnt shave, and he had to go back for mask test?
